Stacy was the daughter of Dr. James Ebbon & Francis Ann (Patton) Adkisson. Mary Lura was her sister. Her father, a physician, treated diseases pertaining to men.

She married Woodward Woodson Altgelt in San Antonio on July 29, 1921. They had three children: Woodward, Jr., James Ernest, & Frances Ann (named in honor of her mother).

News about their marriage was published in the San Antonio Light on August 7, 1921. The picture of Stacy was included in the article.

"Mrs. Woodward W. Altgelt was before her marriage Friday evening, July 29, Miss Stacy Adkisson, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J.E. Adkisson of this city. The marriage took place at the home of Rev. Hugh McLellan with about six friends of the young couple present. Mr. and Mrs. Altgelt are at home with Mrs. Altgelt's parents, 1020 West Woodlawn Avenue."

The following summer she was busy hosting & co-hosting social events with her mother-in-law, Mary, for the upcoming wedding of Mary's son, Augustus, to Nellie Mae Mitchell on November 20, 1924.

Their son, Woodward Woodson, was born August 5, 1922, followed by his brother, James Ernest on October 6, 1924. Four years later, on September 02, 1928, they welcomed their daughter, Frances Ann.
